Re: Planner Connector - Get Task Description

Hi @CatesGEA,

 

If you want to get a description of a single task, you could configure the corresponding Planner Task-Trigger to get the task id, and then get the description of the task through Get task details.

If you want to get a description of all the tasks, you can first use List tasks / List my tasks to get the id of all tasks, then configure Get task details action in Apply_to_each to get a description of each task.

Please take a try.

Re: Planner Connector - Get Task Description

Hi,

I have one question / problem regarding task descriptions.

My flow creats a task in planner -> works fine

But I also need to create the task description based on my flow (based on a list) into the planner task.

The result works so far, that the description is desplayed in HTML source but not as simple text.

Can someone support me?

Hi @Oliandril,

 

You can use Html to text to convert the content you need to insert into text.
